I had a 2.4ghz MacBook aluminum with 2gb of memory and a 250gb hard drive. After closing the lid it took a total of 5-7 seconds for the light on the front to blink and you could hear the hard drive noise fade away in that time. Now with a 2.53ghz MacBook Pro 13" with 4gb of memory and a 250gb hard drive it takes 12 seconds before I can move it without possibly damaging the hard drive. What gives? And why are the new MacBook Pros so damn sensitive to being moved? Did the other models do this too but were too quiet to hear when they parked? At any rate, it takes 12 seconds to hear the drive spin down, it takes less than 3 seconds to be up and on the internet when waking. What is going on when it's asleep? Is the drive on? Is the memory still loaded? Is the processor being used at all? Is there something I can do to speed up the sleep process? Thanks for any help in understanding the quirk.
